Best News Source

I've been reading the New York Times since I was in my early teens. My parents read the Times and my two grown sons do the same. The Times has always been the primary news source for my multi-generational family.

Although nothing beats home delivery the Times application on my portable devices is a very close second. Not only do I have the best information at my fingertips I can easily search articles in the past. One of the most beneficial aspects of the application is the morning and afternoon briefings. These are better than great for the start and end of the day. Kudos to The Times for a job well done.


I can't imagine not reading the NYT each day on the app. NYT has done the best job I've seen of integrating media to bring news, even redefining "news" to fit the wider possibilities of audio, video, and interactivity. The hyperlinks to background information and related stories would be a huge benefit alone, but the app doesn't stop there at all. The independent short documentary and creative videos are either a joy to watch or a way to learn about a subject that's not as easily covered in print. For cooks, the seamless integration of the cooking area with the NYT Cooking app goes way beyond helpful. It quickly becomes essential.

NYT via its app is the anchor of my day

Being retired and less mobile than I used to be, the Times keeps me connected to a world of stimulating and provocative ideas. It has replaced my weekly trip to my neighborhood bar for social interaction. It is a truly qualitative life enhancer.

My only suggestion would be to include more thorough web references to cited or related material such as court documents and web sites. It should be no surprise that New York Times readers thirst for more depth.
